i hoped beyond hope that his forgetfulness was stemming from the morphine patches (for the pain he was still experiencing from the breaks he'd incurred when he had recently fallen) he had attached to his back and not anything permanent!!!
katherine's first day of kindergarten came about six weeks after mrs. moss had died.
since she had afternoon kindergarten, she was able to sleep in that morning, which she did. when she awoke she asked if she was going to have time to go to mosses' house and show him her uniform and new backpack.
(what she really had on her mind was going to the court to share popcorn, snacks, and a coke with her mosses;)
after assuring her that we had plenty of time, we brushed teeth, curled hair, clothed, etc... she was ready!!! so, off to mosses' house we went. she ran up to his door and rang the doorbell. jean came to the door and welcomed us.
by the time, john and i made it into the den, katherine was already sitting at the table with her drink and very own bowl of popcorn, swinging her dangling legs, and giggling with her mosses.
after her very nutritious lunch, she gave him a BIG hug, he gave her a kiss, and i took a couple of photos. she had gotten her "mosses fix" and was READY to go and knock out her first day of school!!!
katherine learned early in her life that a
"mosses fix" made all the difference...
(to be continued...)
love and God's blessings,
